Seamless integration with the ability to run a reverse image search easily no matter where you store files, with only a right click. It's superior for online comparison shopping and locating specific items. You can even sub- search smaller parts within the image. My main complaint is that it seems to be updated for the purpose of mainly just shopping, whereas the ability to match faces consistently has somehow plummeted. Seems like the they took 3 steps forward and 4 steps back with this

Amazed at the searching and matching ability of this app. MUCH thought and time went into the creation of these technologies, only possible through countless hours of meticulous, legitimate human input. Searching for and finding an exact match is a fairly simple process--the software simply takes an image of an item and matches it to all other exact items. But for a computer to find items which are "similair" to a human mind is incredibly complex. Very well done! Thank you!

I use this app constantly! Reads all typewritten text perfectly, most handwritten text. It's great for copying text from images or certain apps that don't feature select/copy functions by first using a screenshot. It's not quite as useful for searching images, such as plants, but this depends on the image; I have had many successful image searches. There is just one thing... it would be nice if I could use the selected and copied text and share this to another app, such as Google search.
